3. Killing Time’s Brightside (1989)

You can hear the influences of the previous things I mentioned before, but it was its own thing. You can hear some Negative Approach influences and stuff like that, but essentially it was its own thing. And I’m really big on that. There’s the genre we call hardcore, but we still need to be original and unique in music and life in general. And when Brightside came out, nothing was touching that record. It just sounded cool. The song structures were great, it had a hard element, a groovy element.

Favorite Track: It’s not “Fools Die,” even though it’s a classic song. We actually covered that song, that’s why I’m mentioning it. But I’d have to say “Brightside.” Another flawless record!
